I just ordered some flat handlebars for my mountain bike. I will be racing this season and wanted to streamline a bit. But than I started having nightmares that I would not be able to steer or control my bike as well as I normally do. Can anyone give me their opionon on flat bars? What are the advantages and disadvantages? If anybody rides with a flat bar, could you let me know if it took a while to adjust to them or is it only a slight difference from a raised bar?
